Protective Face Masks For Communities in Need
Bridges To Safety
Bridges to Safety (BTS) is a centralized service center for victims of domestic violence and was established and is run by a group of nonprofit/community-based and government leaders. The St. Paul & Ramsey County Domestic Abuse Intervention Project (SPIP) acts as the fiscal/managing agency for the collaboratively run center. BTS provides access to multiple critical resources in one safe location with over 1,200 victim visits each year. IBTS has been temporarily closed, while continuing to provide services to victims. BTS hopes to reopen in the next few weeks and will require the use of masks for all victims/participants entering the center. They hope to have 500 masks to provide to BTS participants over the next six months.
BTS is accepting adult and child masks of any design.
Mask Kits Available
Are you in need of fabric? Once again, Sew Good Goods is partnering with Treadle Yard Goods to continue to provide mask kits at no charge for these communities.
The kits include elastic/loops and enough fabric for 12 3-layer adult-sized masks. The kits can be used to make children’s masks as well, and these are also urgently needed. Kits are available for pickup at Treadle during regular business hours.
Treadle is also serving as a drop-off for finished masks for all four initiatives, in addition to individual hand sanitizer for the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood project.
Thank you for your ongoing support!
